Very small and congested rooms. The mixed dorm was stinking so much that I had to go down myself to ask for an air freshener. No one answered the emergency number. Bathrooms and toilets are very old-fashioned with broken handles. But overall okay for 1 -2 nights for budget solo travellers.

Good location for traveller at London”

I spent one night at this hotel, in the 6-bed dormitory room. The staff is so friendly, the location is convenient to walk to almost famous attractions in London. The room is acceptable with the price. The bonus point is breakfast. It is really good.

직원과 룸컨디션 모두 좋습니다. 관광지도 매우 가깝게 있으며 조식도 여행자들이 한끼를 든든히 채우기에 매우 좋습니다. 다만 바로앞에 기차역이 있고 공사소리로 인해 깊은 잠을 자기에는 어려움이 있습니다. 또한 이 호스텔 락커에 현금과 카드를 넣어놨는데 도난이 일어났음을 주의하세요.

아침주는게 좋았으나 아침 6시부터 철근 씹어먹는 소리와 아침을 맞이해야한다. 바로옆에 기찻길이 있어서 새벽까지 그리고 해밝기 전부터 기차소리를 들어야한다. 그리고 엘레베이터가 없는데 혼성 방은 5층이라 카펫 깔린 미끄러운 계단길을 힘겹게 올라가야만 했다. 너무 힘들어서 어지러울정도 샤워실은 층마다 공용이라 30분정도는 기다려야하는 안타까운 일이 발생했다. 조식식사는 맛이있었으나 전체적으로 싼맛에 쓰는 숙소
